Simply Joy

Here's another card I created for my mother's stash, which I plan to give her for her birthday.......if I can wait that long!  I'd gotten the "My Notebook" Art of the Card set from Hero Arts  It's not Christmas-y by any means, but something kept nudging me to use this swash on a Christmas card.

I inked it in green on a muted tan piece of cardstock and mounted it on a dark green card.  Calligraphy pens tend to bleed when writing over a stamped area, so I sprayed lightly with hairspray before writing.  

I was so pleased with the end result, I went ahead and made several of these, also trying it on a muted blue background.  

Thanks for stopping by!
Come back soon!
